A Tulsa mother has been missing for a month. Just a few weeks before her disappearance, she had accused a man of rape. News On 6 crime reporter Lori Fullbright reports the woman had also filed a protective order against the man she accused. An order to extend that order was filed on Monday, at the request of homicide detectives.

The detective working on the case Monday evening told the News On 6 he has new evidence in the case.
He can't say what it is, but says it helps him establish a time line before Angie Tucker disappeared. He also says it confirms his fears that she's been the victim of foul play.

When 34-year-old Angie Tucker didn't show up for work at the OSU Medical Center in early November, they reported her missing. Her employer and her family say it's unusual for her to be out of contact especially from her two children.

Angie Tucker told police on October 6th, that her ex-boyfriend entered her apartment around four in the morning, raped her and left. He was arrested a short time later. Two days after that, she filed a protective order against him. She said he had attempted to cause her harm, had harassed her and stalked her. She wrote, “he broke in my home and raped me."

The man denies any forcible sex took place.

Police in Tulsa say the district attorney didn't have enough evidence, so charges weren’t filed in the case. A couple of weeks later, Angie Tucker disappeared and hasn't been seen since.

"We have no clue where she is. And, that's what's so frustrating is that we don't have a starting point of where to look. And, everybody is just worried sick,” said Hylan Tucker, Angie’s brother.

Her family has handed out flyers and the volunteers who have been searching for the body of 13-year-old Cori Baker have also been looking for any signs of Angie Tucker.

Police interviewed the ex-boyfriend and say they're looking at every possible scenario.

The News On 6 also talked to the ex-boyfriend's attorney who says his client understands why police wanted to talk to him, but that he has no idea where Angie Tucker is and hasn't seen her in about a month, like everybody else.
